Liu Zining_4

Born in the North eastern region of China in 1983, Liu Zining graduated from Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts in 2006. He is one of China’s emerging contemporary painters; his artistic style finds its expression in paintings where the use of colours and perspective are explored in all their visual power.

With “Looking at me, Looking at you” and “Us”, Liu Zining’ causes an intense emotional tremor within the visitor. Overlooking the Museum’s monumental staircases, the eyes of the shark, somewhat with an indignant and sorrowful expression, intend to elicit from mankind an admission of guilt and demands reconsideration of his actions.
